I promised "at least 10 and no more than 20", and I'm glad that I put a cap on it. Because, much like every other poll, it ended up being close in some spots. The most comfortable cut off point though, where it were a couple votes separating the pack, was at 14.

Thank you to all of you for coming out this season for what is proving to be an extremely wild ride! I hope that you continue to show up to cheer on your favorites (and as I mentioned, above, play the Home Game!)
